Why are certain ETL tools not on this list?
It is our intention to include all the significant products in this report but to do this we need the full cooperation of the vendor. In most cases that is not a problem but some vendors either won’t cooperate at all or have decided to withdraw their products from the report because, we assume, they didn’t like the results. In a number of cases vendors have said that they will cooperate but we are still waiting for their answers to (difficult) questions. The following vendors and products fall into one of the above categories:
- Ab Initio: will not cooperate with us in any way
- SeeBeyond ETL: we have received no answers to our requests for information
ETL tools and the data warehouse
Many ETL tools has been originally developed to make the task of the data warehouse developer easier and more fun. They don’t need to write SQL anymore, it’s almost just drag-and-drop to develop a data warehouse.
Today, the top ETL tools in the market do not only data warehousing and ETL but they have also functionality on board for data profiling, data cleansing, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Big Data processing, data governance and master data management.

ETL is just not enough, you need business intelligence software too
ETL and data integration software does only take care of the extraction, transformation and loading of data. Once the data is loaded into a database, for example a data warehouse or OLAP cube, you need Business Intelligence software to be able to analyse and visualise the data. This type of software is often also able to provide reporting, data mining and dashboarding functionality. Learn more about business intelligence software.
